If you a new blogger on Instagram, then you have probably asked yourself:
How do I grow my Instagram followers? How do I get 1000 Instagram followers organically?
The answer: It is possible to grow your Instagram followers organically. I did and I want to help you do it too.
What does organic growth mean?
Organic growth means growing your Instagram account without buying followers and fake likes which can lead to your account being banned and low engagement.
It is tempting to do this, but it will hurt the account in the long run.
How to gain your first 1000 followers on Instagram organically?
1. Be Consistent
Being consistent on Instagtam is key to growing. This means consistent with producing new content, consistency with the look of your feed, and consistency with your Instagram stories.
Being consistent improves Engagement and strengthens the relationship you build with your audience..
The Instagram algorithm loves when you are using all of their features.
If other Instagram users are engaging with your content this helps boost your audience reach and in turn you gain more followers.
It really is this simple.
If you want to make money or drive traffic from Indtagram, be consistent.
2. Tag your location
Connect with other brands, businesses, and accounts in your area.
Majority of my audience is located in Denver, CO because I consistently tag my location or near by locations.
Another factor is a brand might be looking to connect with a blogger in the Denver area or in your area.
By tagging your location, you might come up in their search.
3. Engage with your audience
They leave a comment, let them know you read it. Comment back or liking it is crucial.
Take time to comment and like other posts within the same niche. This way you are exposing yourself to a wider audience.
Show up in your stories. Show your face. You are a person after all and we relate more with an actual person.than just the brand.
4. Use the right hashtags
Using hashtags can connect you with other accounts that are just like yours. I have been able to connect with other mom entrepreneurs by using the right hashtags.
I use Planoly to save my tags in groups according to my posts.
This is helpful because you want to review you Instagram account insights and understand which hashtag groups are working best.
Also, I recommend researching hashtags that are related to your posts every so often and adding them to you list.
5. Create a strategic posting schedule
In order to do this, pay close attention to your analytics. Specifically the hours and days that majority of your followers are active on Instagram.
Make sure you are posting when your analytics show more activity.
